We have the room for you! Or rather, a virtual room with a panel willing to listen and answer your questions accompanied by the occasional special guest(s) for themed sessions. Head on down to below to find the schedule and link for the zoom session. See you there!"

How do I ask questions during the session?

Please "raise your hand" in order to ask a question and a moderator will call on you when you're up. To "raise your hand" in Zoom, click on the “Participants” button in the toolbar at the bottom of the page. This will open up the Participant panel where you can click on the "raise hand" icon.

You can either type your question in the chat or unmute yourself and ask your question to the group.

What if my question isn't answered during the session?

If you ask a question that can’t be answered in a timely matter or require further research before a final answer is given, the parties responsible for the question will be following up with you through either email or our ticket system.

Can I attend more than one session?

You absolutely can! In fact, we welcome it. Each session will be unique as people ask different questions and we might end up learning from you!
